You might be asking…
What if my course has a residential school? chevron_right
A residential school (or res school) is a short, intensive learning experience where usually you come on campus for a few days to connect with your online classmates, put your learning into practice and get one-to-one advice from your lecturers.
If safe to do so, residential schools will go ahead. Some may be delayed until an appropriate time, while others may happen online.
We are monitoring the situation – with your safety our top priority. Rest assured, whatever the situation with residential schools, we will ensure that you are able to complete your course.
Can I advance my career sooner with credit? chevron_right
Quite possibly. If you’ve completed related study or have recognised industry experience, you could be eligible for credit towards your degree. Explore ways you can fast-track your course with recognition of prior learning, or get in touch with our friendly team to discuss your options.
Which level of study should I choose? chevron_right
It all comes down to your career goals and experience.
Depending on your previous study and industry experience, you may be able to enrol directly into a master’s degree. Alternatively, you can start with a graduate certificate or graduate diploma.
If you meet the admission requirements, most of our postgraduate degrees allow you to enrol into the master’s and, if you prefer, you can exit early with a graduate certificate or diploma.
